I believe children are the future of our society and have the right to a quality childhood. One of the many beliefs I have is children are entitled to an accepting environment that responds to and promotes individual capabilities, and respect regardless of a persons health, developmental, economic, social status or cultural background. Children need to be in an environment surrounded by caring and responsible adults who help them develop self-confidence and reach developmental milestones. To support a child emotionally, you must show them respect and appreciation at all times. As a caregiver I make sure to make children feel safe, secure, and loved by me. I guide children in understanding and expressing their own and others feelings. Throughout the day I promote empathy and generosity. I use caring language and compliment children daily on their accomplishments and skills. I love to display children's art through out the room, to show appreciation and interest in their creativity. The curriculum I offer is made from prior observations and planned to reach and encourage specific children's goals for development. Following a daily schedule makes children feel secure and balanced.
